SOURCE: Ryobi 14 inch electric chainsaw won't cut with new chain

Hi Rossmac,

Both the smoke and it's lack of cutting ability are symptoms of the same problem. The Chain is dulled. Instead of cutting, it's just rubbing on the wood and heating up. It's also not a big deal to fix..

Your options are:

  • Replace the Chain
  • Have the Chain sharpened
  • Sharpen it yourself
To sharpen it yourself, you will need a narrow round file that will fit inside the Chain teeth. Each tooth has a two cutting edges, get the file a position that matches the tooths angle of attack. Don't over do, three to five swipes of the file should do it on each surface.

You will see they alternate directions. You may find it easier to do all the teeth in one direction (skipping every other tooth) then do the other direction. Up to you.

When you are done, check the level of your chain oil. Since it did get hot, you might manually oil the chain before trying out your handi-work.

Go cut some wood.
Mike

SOURCE: my ryobi chainsaw rcs 2040 keeps stopping but

RYOBI----- with the motor running at high revs the chain stops indicates that the sprocket behind the centrifugal clutch is worn out or the centrifugal clutch itself ,or the clutch shoes are worn out the way to tell is to remove the bar and chain and have alook where the chain was conected to the saw, i think you will see the sprocket is buggered and as that is attatched to the clutch drum that will have to be replaced along with clutch springs and shoes, i think you have been running the chain a bit too loose or not running it at realy high revs ,which is what they are designed to do ,cme back to me if you feel the need

SOURCE: I have a 14" Woodshark Poulan chainsaw. I put in

Poulan Chainsaws are pretty well all powered by two stroke engines. My best guess is that you have the fuel mixture incorrect (it should be a 1:40 ratio of oil to gas). if the fuel mixture is not the problem then your choke is messed up. If you haven't tried already try and find the sweet spot in the choke where it will run.

SOURCE: Homelite chainsaw won't stay running

I have a Homelite 33cc which has never run smoothly since it was brand new. Erratic running, sometimes wont idle, and never seems to develop full power. Adjusting the jets achieved no lasting improvement. In frustration I stripped it down right back to the intake port on the cylinder and found the problem. The two screws that hold the the carb mounting plate to the cylinder were a tad too long in manufacture, and even though done up very tight they bottomed out in their holes before applying proper pressure to the sealing gasket, which then developed some "flutter" in the airflow and partially disintegrated, leaving massive air leaks. No way it was EVER going to run properly like that. Check that this isn't the problem area on your particular model before you go crazy trying to tune your carburetor.

See if John Deere has a similar product. Ryobi & John Deere were together a while back and they carry more parts than the private label brand for identical items. If not your out of luck because it was probably mass produced in China for a limited time.

Chokes and Dies when cutting


Adjust the choke or carburetor. In case your chainsaw stalls when the engine is idling, ensure that the choke is set properly. To do so, first try releasing it to adjust it, and then move the plate and tighten all screws once again. To loosen any grit, spray carburetor cleaner spray on the choke's shaft. The carburetor may also need to be adjusted; consult your owner's manual which will guide you on resetting the idle mix screw.

Chain stopped working whilst sawing log on my new ryobi electric chainsaw. Can't find a way of rectifying, help please


As it is a new machine, you should return it for warranty repair or exchange. Make sure that the electricity source will power a working lamp. Good luck!

Use regular bar/chain oil available from home centers, hardware stores, and saw shops. Always keep the chain properly sharpened and tensioned so that you don't have to force the chain into the cut which causes motor overheating. If you need to make an 'under' cut, do so with the top of the bar--don't run the saw upside down. Good luck!

Carnt keep ryobi pcn 4545 running when i increse the power


How do you increase the power to an electric saw? By your question, I'm assuming a fueled engine model. Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for any plugging. Check condition of fuel lines and tightness of carburetor fasteners. If no help, turn the H jet needle CCW about 1/4 turn--which should result in the engine 4-stroking. Will the engine now run at speed (but not as fast as before)? If ok, warm the engine up, open the throttle and adjust H CW until the engine speeds up somewhat, but still 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This produces best power and least heat! Hope this helps!

14" Ryobi petrol chainsaw will only run for 10 seconds


You are on the right track. Keep priming which indicates the fuel mixture is too lean to run. In other words the fuel line is partially clogged up. A drop of water on the gas tank would cause this problem. The fuel is fed on the suction basis. So clean up the fuel tank, (disassembly the carburator) reservoir, needle, float, offrice and fuel filter. A can of carburator cleaner (spray one) is a big help.

Ryobi pcn 4040 chain saw


I have the same model chainsaw with the same fault. The brake is not releasing when the brake handle is pulled right back. I can only run mine if the brake handle is pulled back to the main handle with a tyrap - defeats the object of the auto-brake completely. Design fault I reckon.
